An emerging dance artist, researcher and educator from Los Angeles, California. Stephanie Camille holds 26 years of combined dance training, teaching and professional performance. Stephanie's training has come from some of the world's leading dance professionals such as, Debbie Allen, Karen McDonald, Ron Brown, Deborah Brokus, Sheron Wray, commercial industry leaders such as Galen Hooks, HiHat and Fatima. Her training and career has been the catalyst for diving into dance education, academia, and research.

 

After completing her Bachelor's of Science degree in Kinesiology at Cal State University, Fullerton - Stephanie furthered her academic career by receiving an Associates degree in Occupational Science as well as receiving her license to practice as a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant, this whilst working across the lifespan in the hospital and community settings. It was in the hospital setting that Stephanie was inspired to integrate her artistic and clinical practices which included working with children and young adults diagnosed with varying disabilities. This led to preliminary programming of movement based interventions for children with physical, social and emotional dysfunctions. To further her movement based research studies, Stephanie was awarded the Leverhulme Scholarship at the well-renowned Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London, England. ​

Currently, Stephanie is completed her Master's of Fine Arts degree in Dance Creative Practice at Laban with Distinction. As an international dance artist, Stephanie is focusing on her current research supported through Arts Council England, the meeting of two movement forms - Somatic movement and the Africana Aesthetic movement through the lens of rhythm. This is to be used as a conduit to greater body awareness and an approach to African, modern and contemporary dance movement. It is within this research - developing pedagogy and practice - that the 'Rhythmic Body' is taking shape. ​

 

Outside of her research Stephanie Camille is further interested in continuing to develop her choreographic work in progress - 'Uninhabited Dwelling' and founding a community dance program bridging the gap between arts and health. Stephanie Camille is working to develop an evidence based therapeutic Afro-contemporary movement practice that engages individuals from all backgrounds with different abilities. Stephanie Camille works for the NHS as an Occupational Therapy Assistant and will be attending Coventry University to receive a Master's of Science in Occupational Therapy beginning January 2023.
